SUCH SWEET THUNDER -
THE DUKE MEETS THE BARD
Saturday 23rd April 2022 - King's Lynn
Harmony In Harlem come to St George's Guildhall in King's Lynn for a special performance of Such Sweet Thunder, the Shakespearean suite by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, followed by a second set of our regular repertoire of Ellingtonian from the 1940s and 1950s.
About the band
With a unique repertoire from the greatest jazz composer/bandleader in history, Duke Ellington, Harmony In Harlem are perfect for a wedding celebration, a Valentine's Ball or corporate entertainment. Our inspiring selection of music ranges from the raw sounds of the jungle to vibrant foot-tapping swing, from the darkest lament to the lavishly romantic, tailored to your needs.
Harmony In Harlem can play anywhere in East Anglia, central England or the London area. The bandleader, Michael Kilpatrick, will happily work with you or your venue to arrange whatever is necessary to perform either indoors or outdoors. The orchestra will consider any community/charitable event or professional engagement. Previous performances range from dances for the Cambridge Lindy Hoppers to a private party at the request of a Lord Justice of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom!

Harmony In Harlem performed at the Plaisterers' Hall for the wedding of a senior Lord Justice, who wrote: "We thought that the band was fantastic - our guests loved it and at least one said it was the best music they have ever heard at a function - I certainly thought so!"
